    State police arrested a Florida man who is accused of hiding brass knuckles in carry-on luggage at Bradley Airport.

    Agents from the Transportation Security Administration stopped Richard Demalo, 63, of Lake Alfred, Florida, just before 7 p.m. on Wednesday after an X-ray machine detected the brass knuckles in his luggage, according to a news release from state police.

    TSA notified state police, who transported Demalo to a sub-barracks at the airport.

    He was charged with carrying and sale of a dangerous weapon and tampering. Bond was set at $2,500.
    Demalo was due in court on Thursday. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.
